“A writer never has a vacation. For a writer, life consists of either writing or thinking about writing.” ~ Eugene Ionesco


Ever since my sixth grade teacher gave me double ticks for using the word ‘cascading’ in the right context, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember ūüôā ¬† ¬†To date I have ten fiction books and a bunch of articles published world-wide under a¬†pseudonym. ¬†I also have many years’ experience as a¬†creative writing teacher and speaker, both locally and at national conferences.

My first love has always been historical fiction Рreading it, then writing it.  Right now, my current works-in-progress are  two series set in 17th century France:   Le Grand Siècle is three novels about power, murder and intrigue in the court of Louis XIV.  The second series  (The Confessions of Monsieur E) follows the adventures of a provincial boy and the debaucheries of the rich and powerful nobles of Paris.

Oh, and there’s also this little beauty….¬†


(co-written with Aurora von Goeth) I am thrilled to announce our non-fiction Louis XIV biography will be released in June 2018 by UK publisher  Pen and Sword Books.
